|Pretty Poppies - MFT|
I was excited to ink up my new stamps from MFT. These poppies are so great and easy. I masked them, stamped the script background and colored the center with my Copics. Bam! Done. I made the card for a few challenges, the week's SCS Inspiration Challenge, and Unscripted Sketch Challenge #205. Both utilized chevrons, so I was excited to break out my chevron dies and an MFT chevron background. I also decided to use the ColourQ #183 this week (Calypso Coral, Daffodil Delight, Blushing Bride, Soft Suede). Chevrons and colors are where my troubles began. Suffice to say that this isn't exactly what I pictured when I started making the card. And I certainly didn't expect to be working on it for more than three hours after I had finished the focal point! It wasn't like I was coloring an image! After an hour break, I went back with a fresh eye and finished the card. Whew! GE (good enough), 'nuff wrangling for the night.
